In the last few weeks we have seen a number of Gionee phones with full-screen displays on TENAA and GFXBench. There is the Gionee S11 and S11S which are likely successors to this years S10 series; then there is the 5” Gionee F205; and most recently seen is the Gionee F6L with a 5.7” screen. However, there is a new one coming soon according to @Evleaks. Called the Gionee M7 Plus, it may set the record as the largest 18:9 display phone.

Gionee already released the M7 and M7 Power last month and will be following it with the M7 Plus. While both have 6.01” screens (FHD+ and HD+ respectively), the M7 Power will have a massive 6.43-inch screen.
Evleaks also provided images of the phone. The top and bottom bezels are smaller just like the regular M7, but the side bezels appear to be wider. There is a single camera on the right of the earpiece on the top bezel and Gionee is written on the bottom bezel.
The back is where the action is. Just like the Gionee M2017, the M7 Plus has a leather back. There is a dual camera setup, a LED flash, and a square-shape fingerprint scanner. All of them sit in a gold plated rectangle. While the use of leather gives it a premium appearance, the design itself borders on uninspiring and ugly.
The specs of the Gionee M7 Plus are unknown at the moment save for the screen size. However, we are keeping our fingers crossed and hoping Gionee packs some interesting features that will justify the price. Trust us, it is going be expensive.
